UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Not very versed in the "Dunkel" style, I think this is a nice beer. Black coca cola colour, with a firm head and plenty of large bubbles breaking through it. very weak aroma of chocolates and coffee. Taste is a bit too much coffee over the chocolates, grassy and the roasted malts. Some charred bitterness too. Sticky palate. It’s a pleasant drink. As much as I love the ultra heavy bottles of Moa beers, I hate the über-gay (both in a John Key sense and the other) contemporary design of the new labels. pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
Not a bad beer. There actually was much substance than what I thought. OK flavour and prickly carbonation, some slight roast.

Pours dark brown color with a minimal head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts and toffee. Flavour of malts, nuts, dark fruits and hay. Ok.

Dark brown color, small beige head. Chocolate, malts in the aroma. Active carbonation, medium-bodied. A bit vegetably, chocolate So and so, some disturbing flavors. Aroma is good.
Bottle - pours black with a tight at head. Roast mlt, cereal and a slight funk. Rost malt bitterness and a lingering dry finish. Lively carbonation, bit too much.

Way too much fizz. Located this in Queenstown, NZ. Pretty rare, it seems. Very dry and pretty malty. Rich. Not to my liking b/c of all the excess carbonation! bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2008
Dark body which was ruby red deep with a light tan head. A little bit of milky coffee and soft chocolate on the aroma also burnt notes. Roasted grain taste, pleasant bitterness and this beer seems to grow on you. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Light red-brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, light cocoa. Taste is burnt sugar, a bit paper, cocoa.
